Exhibit at Northwest Hills Gallery

I did not get a rejection call, so my paintings are at the Northwest Hills Gallery at the Northwest Hills United Methodist Church. The show is, All Creatures Great and Small. Animals of course. I submitted these three:

Young Alpaca
8 x 10 inches, pastel


Boys and Their Toys
16 x 20 inches, pastel

The Crossing
16 x 20 inches, Pastel

The entries were juried by Jan Sewall. There are at lest 60 pieces of artwork in assorted media and different techniques. Beautiful to see. If you get a chance, please stop by. All artwork is at its best, live and in person.

The opening reception is Sunday, May 27, 2007, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. The public is invited. The exhibit is open from today and will be on display through Sunday, June 24.

Hours at the Church Gallery are
Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Saturday, Closed
Sunday, 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
7050 Village Center Drive
Austin, Texas 78731

To get there, turn on Far West Boulevard from Mopac and go to the second light. Turn left and the church is immediately on your right. The gallery is to the left of the main office.

Sadly, I won't be at the reception we will be on our way to Christy's graduation! Congratulations, Christy. She is a senior in High School in Kentucky. Yaaaahoooooo!!

Nice work. I really like the alpaca. He's got so much character.

Good job.

Leslie, thanks again. It is sure better there than on the floor in the studio. There was some good art entered there.

Later,
Jo

Well done, Jo .... its quite something when you get paintings accepted, isn't it? ... a really good feeling.

Sorry I don't come by very often but I love your blog posts when I get the time! I wish I could say 'hand on heart' that I am soooo busy with painting but I procrastinate too much to be able to claim that!

Hi Lesly, thank you so much. After reading blogs it seems all the artists I like are procrastinators. :) It is a trait we have in common. You have so much info on your page and blog that I have only seen a smidgen of it. I don't know much about the abstract paintings, but I love your new life form drawings.
